Capacity Development Program

Capacity Development Program LogoThe Kansas Capacity Development Program provides training, technical assistance, and financial planning assistance to help public water supply systems achieve and maintain the technical, financial and managerial capabilities needed to protect the health of the citizens they serve.

Capacity development is the process of water systems acquiring and maintaining adequate technical, financial, and managerial capabilities to assist them in providing safe drinking water. The Safe Drinking Water Act's (SDWA) capacity development provisions provide a framework for the State and public water supply systems to work together to help ensure that systems acquire and maintain the technical, financial, and managerial (TFM) capacity needed to meet the Act's public health protection objectives.

All Kansas public water supply systems are eligible to use the services provided through the Capacity Development Program.
